Food and Wine and cutthroat competition in Cape May
Take of bunch of Jersey guys. Get them revved up and competitive. Then give them lots of knives. It doesn’t sound like a good idea, but that’s exactly what happens at the chefs’ competitions at the Cape May Food and Wine Festival from September 14th through 22nd. There are dozens of events; wine tastings, beer tastings, and a bourbon tasting. There are lots of meals; a harvest dinner, a clambake, a food tasting at Convention Hall, lunches and brunches.
If, after all that great food, you want something light, head for the East Lynne company’s production of Why Marry? (Sept. 20th) .It was first produced in 1917, was an enormous hit, and was the first play to win a Pulitzer Prize, then was forgotten until the East Lynne Theater Company re-discovered it.
Three days later, on September 23, feast again. One you’re filled to the gills, try some culture at Cape May Stage’s performance of Arthur Miller’s The Price. Arthur Miller wasn’t just famous for marrying Marilyn Monroe, he was also one of America’s great playwrights.
You know that every day is a food and wine celebration in Cape May. The third week in September, it will be even more of a festival. Why not plan a break in Cape May and come visit us at Leith Hall?
